Message:
It's wrong to assume that the address lockername@mit.edu is valid.
Further, for activity lockers, if it is valid, it may well be a
large or poorly-maintained list with addresses that will bounce
and cause a mail loop (since the bounces will go back to
lockername@scripts.mit.edu).  Instead, set up the default procmailrc
to direct mail for lockername@scripts.mit.edu to the user who signed
the locker up for mail_scripts, and notify them that this is the
default so they know to adjust it.
